I do really love this foundation, but I find that after a few hours, it has worn off. With the price of the product, I can't really afford to apply the product multiple times a day.

      Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      I am getting married in December and strolled into Ulta originally looking for another brand that was not sold there.. the manager of the make-up section helped me out. I told him I spend $12 on a bottle of Revlon 24 hour that lasts me nearly a year - with no complaints - but I just wanted something HD for the wedding.

      I don't know if Smashbox is what's *in* right now, but it just didn't cut the cake for me, especially since I could fill up my entire gas tank with the money I used to purchase this and my $12 bottle does a better job.

      I do not have acne, or overly oily skin. My cheeks are a little rosy and my nose always turns red when I'm hot or cold. I would say I'm combination.. a little dry on my forehead and cheeks, but can get a little greasy in my t-zone after the entire day with no touch-ups.

      This foundation looked great the first hour or two. By lunch time I'm looking similar to what I would look like after a 12 hour day. It feels super greasy and does not last... Cakes around my nose and the tint looks to yellow on my skin.

      I am not impressed.

        Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        couldn't even tell it was on my face but it evened out my skin tone! a primer helps even more too. very pricy but a little goes a long way here so this should last me a year or two considering I don't use it every day. great for those who want light but non-noticeable coverage

            it blends very well because i am a female that has a hard skin tone to match. the coverage is lite , but i use boing for the total effect.

              My new favorite foundation. It evens out my skin tone without accentuating the areas of my face that are more on the dry side. I find that it offers just enough coverage (probably somewhere between sheer-medium with a light application), while still looking natural.

                The Rep from SmashBox said the product would last all day, no problem he says! It didn't even make it till noon! To match my skin color, he put a dab on the back of his hand, then used his finger to apply to my face! OMG! First of all, I have no idea where his hands have been. Secondly, I never apply anything to my face using my hands... EVER! The oils from your hands are not good for your face! Totally disgusted by this! Poor excuse for a company rep! Returned product!

                  I see this product is oil free, but is it non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging)?

                • Q:

                  I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

                    This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

                    Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

                    We suggest shade 4 for those who used L3.

                • Q:

                  I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?

                    Light Warm Beige (4) (Item #:2262310) may be your best match. Please note that these shades may be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

                • Q:

                  I am in the "seasoned women" category. Does this foundation settle in to fine lines and/or areas around the eyes emphasizing lines and creases?
